Appréciation du livre

A lovely story that teaches children about the joys of reading and using our imagination. It also introduces various professions that children may not have heard of (Admiral, General, Prime Minister) and so allows for a learning opportunity to talk about these professions and what they mean.

Réaction des enfants

Children love following hearing this cute story about the little princess who wants the best bedtime story. They love it when they find out that that story she actually wants is one that they all know really well – Goldilocks!
